Laleham Church of England Primary School




At Laleham C of E Primary School, we aim to provide an Art and Design curriculum that pupils from Reception to year 6 not only enjoy but also acquire a range of skills and techniques whilst using a variety of materials. We value Art and Design as an important part of the children’s entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum. It is our vision that Art and Design provides the children with the opportunities to develop and extend skills whilst expressing their individual interests, thought and ideas. We strive to use our high-quality curriculum to inspire, engage and challenge children whilst allowing them to experiment and invent their own works of art, craft and designs. We want our pupils to become critical thinkers and to develop a rigorous understanding of art and design learning about a range of great artist, craft makers and designers, showing a good understanding of the historical and cultural development of their art form. As they progress through the scheme of work, we will also provide pupils with the opportunity to critically evaluate and analyse their artwork.
